While I whole heartedly agree with the principles of a community, I believe you completely fail to grasp the issue at hand here and are demonstrating a lack of maturity in your responses.
The original poster's largest flaw is not directly saying a price he paid and exactly what he is looking for. This sale is valued at over a grand and should have been handled more professionally. While this is a serious flaw that needs to be addressed, you are jumping to conclusions that he is trying to make a "profit."
Session 3 at Windells costs $1,899.00. From the best of my understanding, the original poster has already paid said amount in full. $500 of this amount is non-deductable upon cancellation. So if he (or his mother) cancels the trip they receive $1,399.00 back. Which is a loss of $500.
The other, more economical, option is to sell said $1,899.00 trip for an amount of his discretion. If he sells it for anywhere between $1,399.00 and $1,899.00 the original poster cuts his losses. You sarcastically use the phrase "a nice profit," which makes me laugh. Although he hasn't made it clear, the original poster COULD just be trying to cut his losses
The original poster also mentioned that he is looking for "some where around the amount he paid for it." I am under the impression this is not flipping but merely trying to cut his losses as much as possible, which furthers the point made above.
Just because he (or his mother) is not willing to spend $500 on NOTHING does not mean he should "get off NS"
For $1,899 he is breaking even and "hooking someone up" with the chance to attend a sold out session.
I believe you could benefit from taking a step back and trying to see the good in things before judging others and running your mouth,
